Wrens and Wagtails

Welcome to Reception

Welcome to Reception at Kestrel Way. Throughout the year we will update our class pages to share information, useful links, newsletters, and photographs of our learning and experiences which we hope you will find useful. 


PE days are on a Tuesday and Thursday for Wrens and Wednesday and Thursday for Wagtails. Initially, children will have PE in their register groups. How we teach PE may depend on current government guidance.


All children will need their own named water bottle. These are kept in trays in the classrooms so they can access them as and when they need to.


Wrens PE days are Tuesday and Thursday.


Wagtails PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.

All children require an indoor PE kit for this half term consisting of - named green shorts and t-shirt (plain or school logo) in a named PE bag. Children with earrings should have their earrings removed or taped up before school.
